Discovery Church's mission is to make disciples of Jesus.  Discovery is one church in multiple locations. Each location offers a weekend service including live worship and ministries for kids, students, and adults. Beginning in 1984, Discovery Church was created from a then traditional denominational church located on Oak Ridge Road in Orlando, Florida. This growing church knew that their desire was to provide a church experience that related to people in a new way. Several years were spent building leadership teams and incorporating the arts and media into the services.


Discovery Church is led by a body of Elders and Lead Pastor Don Cousins.  Don is a gifted leader, teacher, consultant, and author with over 30 years of ministry experience.   Getting his start as one of the founders of Willow Creek Community Church in Chicago, Don went on to serve there as the Associate Pastor for its first 17 years.  After Willow, Don began consulting with churches all over the United States, coming to Discovery as a consultant in 2009.  He began working with senior leadership and staff to help strengthen the foundation of Discovery’s infrastructure, and in 2010, became the Interim Executive Pastor.  After the resignation of the founding pastor in 2013, Don stepped in as Interim Lead Pastor. The “interim” label was removed at the end of 2013. 


Discovery Church is seeking a Teaching & Young Adult Ministry Pastor that will be primarily responsible for the direction and implementation of the Discovery Church's Young Adult Ministry. Oversight of all aspects of the Young Adult ministry, including Young Adult Group Life, large Young Adult events, community and global outreach opportunities, recruitment and training of Young Adult leadership team, will be the primary piece of this role. With leadership of the church-wide Young Adult Ministry, this position has the opportunity to speak into the function and direction of the Young Adult ministry areas as they relate to the multi-site venues of Discovery. This person should be an effective communicator and influencer, as they will be using this gift up to 12-15 times per year to preach/teach to the people of Discovery. The Teaching Pastor & Young Adult Ministry Pastor will first and foremost be a spiritual leader of leaders and will be the voice for the next generation.


The successful candidate will have a proven track record of working in a fast-paced setting committed to reaching the unreached, working within a community, and promoting innovation through collaboration. They will show a high degree of effectiveness in relational leadership, dynamic communication, expository teaching, biblical discipleship, and Young Adult Ministry.
